My bettas new trick

So a half hour ago, I was playing with my bettas Tiffany and lucky by making them jump for food. Then I was thinking to myself that I wonder if I can teach them to go through small hoops. So i started with one of my bracelets, both my bettas achieved this in less then a minuet. So, I get another idea about having them go through one of my rings that is a size five, it toke them longer to build the currage to swim through, but both did it. Then I got a wild idea to see if they could swim through one of my rings that is a size four. Tiffany did twice, but lucky was to scared. I'm so proud of them. :)

Depression is just like a broken bone, they both need medical attention and it's nothing to be ashamed of. Try to write at least ten healthy and positive things that are going on in your life. You will be amazed by how effective this is.

I just held the ring in the water, then my bettas would be attracted to it because it's shiny and bite it. After they felt like they bit the ring enough to show it who's boss, they would swim through on there own. Then praised them and gave them a blood worm. It's easy to teach them how to swim through hoops. It sounds hard, but, it's easy. Try it it's really cool.

That's awesome! Bettas have so much personality and intelligence. Too many people don't give them enough credit but they're amazing creatures.
